Window on the Past: Overlee Road

editorial image

MANY readers will recognise this image, though it’s doubtful any will remember the time.
The housing is still the same, but our picture was taken before 1914 — the year the First World War broke out.
As far as we can make out, the picture was taken at 
Linwood Avenue and, looking along the road, we can see a small group of children on the street.
There are also a few more trees lining the street, but all in all not much has changed in this quiet area of Clarkston.
